Greeting Anew, how to live a spontaneous life.
It is vitally important to greet each moment as if it was the first moment, bringing a new experience to us. This helps us work towards releasing old patterns of connecting and relating with ourselves and other people, with everything in every moment that we encounter. Otherwise we find ourselves running on subconscious patterns, not unlike animals who are instinctive. And instinctive is not the same as living with our intuition unfolding. That is what we want, to be intuitive, in touch with our feelings. Feelings are the sum total of our experience and separate to emotions. If you want to hear more about feeling as against emotions, I am happy to hear from you and will respond to an email.
Greeting Anew works your non-physical muscles and is beneficial to the way you live your life. If we are fresh in our approach, we can identify and be fresh ourselves. We feel and see through different eyes, giving us truer feelings and spontaneity in absolute awareness, instead of living and being on automatic pilot.
It is a part of self-mastery to constantly greet people and situations anew. Each day I give myself constant reminders to greet anew with everything and everyone with whom I encounter.
Categorising into boxes
It is all too easy to slip into the hum drum method of automatically categorising into boxes. It’s a natural way our body works, trying to assess people and situations to make sense and order in our lives. But it causes separation and ideally, we can unlearn this automatic way of living our lives. It happens ion a milli-second, as we use our senses in our lives through filters which helps prevent an overload of sensory input.
In particular I am talking about people, who we can automatically categorise and put into a box. And then carry with us an expectation of those ones always behaving in the same way, we see them rather through our memory of how they were and what they mean to us. This is very disrespectful and what we are doing is projecting onto them which may keep them stuck. You know the feeling, you feel that you are evolving, changing, improving and other familiar people in your life see you and treat you in the same way, always the same way. They are unable to appreciate how you feel new and consequently, you feel unheard, misunderstood, unseen.
It may constrict them even if it is done unconsciously, which prevents those ones from changing when we contribute to the situation in this way by expecting them to be the same old way.
To be able to bring new life into our interactions and stop expecting things to be on repeat, takes effort. It is human nature to automatically slot things into categories and boxes and attempt to make sense of things, according to our unconscious rendering of the situation and it helps us to understand everything more.
But because we keep growing, our understanding expands and grows with us and it is not stagnant. If we do not continue to grow, learn and expand ourselves, we start going backwards. We are part of evolution, and if we aren’t evolving, we do not stand still, we devolve! I feel qualified in commenting on the saying to ‘use it or lose it’. It takes greater effort as we grow in age to stay active and improve in our self mastery, which is of interest to me and no doubt to some readers also. Worth mentioning here is a premise of self-mastery which is just that. It is about evolution and heading in the direction that allows us to release fear-based patterning and incorporate more love based activities into our lives.
When we were younger, fitter, more agile, there was a lightness in our step that is often absent over time, if we become more settled and sedentary. If that’s what it takes, greater effort, then that is what we must do. From my experience until a year ago, I had become quite sedentary and luckily somehow, energies draw to us what we need. In this case it was joining a twice weekly strength building exercise class. From that I had more energy to walk on a regular basis and my core strength keeps improving.
How we live our life can be conditioned unconsciously by society, community, cultural differences and so on. Seniors in Australia, and that’s a generalisation, from my experience, are very active and involved in a whole plethora of interests and activities. They are out and about, leading very busy lives. Well good on them! Good on you if that applies to you! If it is not you, then great also!
Returning to the earlier comments about your life, purpose and goals. I have available a particularly good document, which is a process of Creative Visualisation. This works well when done every day and helps over time to energetically attract what you want in your life. Either email or phone me for it.
I love it when I can live life with enthusiasm, disallowing tendencies to become cynical and flat. It can be so interesting, many of us feel we understand and are getting a handle on why we are here with clarity and conviction. And then there are times with this outlook that we comprehend that what we once knew and understood continues to grow, expanding more and more. We build on our experiences and what we know, which is ongoing, helping us to evolve further and further.
Cheerio for now, please write or call, I would dearly love to hear from you.
Love and Laughter,
